The Boardwalk is a lovely spot to stop for a drink but the coffees are tiny, take an age to come and ours were all served more or less cold. Having to ask and wait for sugar ( which seems to be strictly rationed) only makes the experience more frustrating. At nearly £3 a cup - we expected better. Staff were nice enough - but didn't seem able to do do anything other than apologise. Wish we hadn't bothered.

Lovely to go for a drink and catch up with friends, nice outside seating area with heaters and great panoramic views of Felixstowe. Have been here a few times for drinks now and have to say as nice as it is it’s very pricey for Suffolk. I’ve bought cheaper drinks in some London pubs. Though can appreciate the refurbishment cost a great deal so price is worth it

Popped in for a coffee and bite to eat on this wet and dull bank holiday Monday morning. The place is set out well, with outside seating area which would be lovely on a sunny day. The food we had was excellent, Eggs Benedict and Scrambled Egg with Smoked Bacon. Ingrendients used were of very good quality and taste. Prices were very reasonable for the quality you got. Service was friendly and prompt. A very nice place, would definatley go back and maybe try the lunch menu.

With rain falling steadily on Good Friday we stopped off here for a coffee and light lunch after a walk along the seafront. With outside seating undercover and also heated we both opted for different versions of paninis and watched the waves roll in along the beach. Following the renovation of the pier this is a great new addition to the front. All we need now is some more suitable weather to fully enjoy the experience.

We visited the restaurant mid-February so we preferred to sit inside because the weather was still a little bit chilly. I assume during summer time it would be nice to sit outside in the pier. The portions pricewise and size wise were quite fair. Classic pub dishes in decent prices with a good variety of draft beers, nothing special though to make you visit it again. We had with us our 14 month daughter therefore we had to use a highchair for her. The table that we were sitting it hadn’t so much space for a highchair so it was a little bit uncomfortable. Overall we had a good time without the feeling that we would like to get back again.
